Rossdale in the News

21 Jan

With the West Rossdale and Power Plant discussions in recent City Council meetings, the future of Edmonton’s historic river crossing district has been a hot topic in the media and online.

What are your thoughts on these ideas? Would this essential Edmonton historic area be best served by an artificial canal? Leave your thoughts below!

It has been quite some time since there has been a meeting of the Rossdale Re-generation group. Our initial objective of having the EPCOR Generating Plant conserved has met with some success as the City of Edmonton has provided funding to secure the building for a three year period. On January 20, 2015 a major report regarding the future of the plant as well as the plan for West Rossdale redevelopment will be reviewed and debated at the Executive Committee of City Council.
